Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



De-licious cake! What's not to like about maple syrup and nuts? The cake is light and the flavour is wonderful. I did use a cholesterol free butter alternative and egg replacer. I must say the icing is a wee bit too sweet for our tastes, so I added a dollop of unsweetened whipped cream to balance. Worked great. Thanks for sharing Mike! I know this will be made again for sure. Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
